CAF Warbird Tube: SBD-5 Dauntless
ONLINE EVENT Get a walk-around tour of the CAF's SBD Dauntless Lady in Blue based at Airbase Georgia. Douglas Aircraft purchased the SBD contract, and the SBD-1 was first delivered in late 1940. Over 5,000 aircraft were built, and production of the carrier-based scout, dive, and torpedo bomber ceased in July 1944. Despite accusations that the aircraft was underpowered, vulnerable, lacking in range, and exhausting to fly for any length of time, the “Dauntless” helped turn the tide of World War II at the Battle of Midway on June 4, 1942. The SBD was the only U.S. Navy dive bomber to serve from the beginning of World War II until the end.
